LOS ANGELES, July 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — EVCS, one of the largest electric vehicle (EV) fast-charging network operators on the West Coast, is pleased to announce the commencement of construction for 165 EV chargers at 23 LA Fitness clubs and 1 Esporta Fitness club in California, Oregon, and Washington. This milestone marks a significant step in EVCS’ ongoing business relationship with Fitness International, LLC, a leading health club operator in the United States.
As the project progresses, EV drivers can anticipate a wide array of fast-charging options available at select LA Fitness and Esporta Fitness locations. In California, installations have already begun in Van Nuys, Pasadena, Baldwin Park, Fountain Valley, Irvine, Lake Elsinore, San Diego, Murrieta, and Sherman Oaks. Additional California locations include Santa Clarita, Norco, Downey, Vista, Diamond Bar, Huntington Park, Whittier, Fremont, and Antioch. Furthermore, EVCS has plans to install chargers at LA Fitness locations in Oregon and Washington, encompassing Beaverton, Hillsboro, Covington, Kirkland, Lynnwood, and Tacoma.

All of these chargers will be powered by 100% renewable energy, and 40 of them will notably boast power capacities exceeding 75 kW, allowing vehicles to fully charge in as little as 30 minutes.
